McFarlane Releases Photos of NHL Legends 7

Seven Teams Represented in Five-Player Lineup

Source: McFarlane Toys — Posted 7/24/2008

McFarlane has released photos of NHL Legends 7 series of Sports Picks figures.

NHL Legends 7 includes debut figures for three players and new poses for two previously released figures, and seven different teams are represented in this five-player lineup. The lineup includes:

Maurice "Rocket" Richard: "Rocket" Richard scored 544 goals for the Canadiens, good enough for 26th place on the all-time list. He helped deliver eight Stanley Cups to Montreal.

Stan Mikita: The only player in NHL history to win the Hart, Art Ross and Lady Byng trophies in the same season (for MVP, Scoring Leader and Sportsmanship). Mikita won all three awards in back-to-back seasons (1966-1967 & 1967-1968). His 541 career goals rank him 27th on the all-time scoring list.

Doug Gilmour: He arrived from Calgary and paid immediate dividends, helping the Flames to the Finals and scoring the Stanley Cup-winning goal against Montreal. Gilmour was acquired by the Maple Leafs in February 1992, and set a Toronto record for points in a single season (127) the following year. In 1994, Gilmour was honored with the "C" on his jersey as Toronto's new captain.

Gordie Howe 2: The members of the NHL's 800-goal club can hold their meetings in a phone booth. Wayne Gretzky is the career leader with 894 goals, but Howe's second-place ranking (with 801) shouldn't be overlooked, especially when you consider he scored 174 goals during his six seasons in the WHA. He's "Mr. Hockey" -- a nickname that tells you everything you need to know about Gordie Howe.

Mark Messier 3: Messier was the second half of the 1-2 punch that brought Edmonton four Stanley Cups with Wayne Gretzky. Messier made his biggest impact in the 1989-90 season, where (as the Oilers' captain) he led Edmonton to their fifth championship in seven years alongside a new coach, new starting goalie and with Gretzky playing in L.A. Following his stunning Edmonton career, Messier led the New York Rangers to a heart-stopping Finals victory over Vancouver in 1994. The march to the Stanley Cup included a rugged Eastern Conference Finals series win over New Jersey, highlighted by Messier's front-page Game Six prediction, "We'll Win Tonight."

Messier and Gilmour's figures will be made in even splits between their two teams, and will ship in solid-packed cases to their home markets as well. Check back with us in the coming weeks to see the first packaged samples from this lineup. NHL Legends 7 is scheduled to arrive in stores early this October.
